SOEmote is a combination of facial recognition and voice technology that players can use to control the facial expressions and voices of their characters.
Facial expressions[edit | edit source]
Controlling facial expressions is accomplished through the use of a webcam aimed at a player's face. SOEmote tracks key points on a player's face and moves the character's facial features to match the player's facial expression as closely as possible.
Voice fonts[edit | edit source]
The second part of SOEmote is Vivox's Voice Font technology, which can alter a player's voice when using a microphone, allowing a player's voice to sound more natural for their character while increasing anonymity.
